Re: Did someone say flipper?
That is impressive and very, very cool.
I had JUST finished reading the recipe below, so my mindset was not with dolphins, but the seal flipper pie outline. Ooopppps.
(you have to be or know a newfie to understand why)

•1 small turnip
•3 carrots, sliced
•2 onions, sliced
•1 parsnip, sliced

•1/2 lb fat back pork
•2 tbsp vinegar
•salt & pepper to taste
Dumpling Pastry – Ingredients:
•1 1/2 cups flour
•2 tsp. baking powder
•small pat of butter
1. Cut all fat and slag from flippers.
2.Place them in a deep dish with enough boiling water to cover.
3.Add vinegar and set aside to cool, then wipe dry with paper towel and place in baking pan or large casserole dish.
4.Add pepper and salt to taste.
5.Cover with sliced onions and sliced fat pork.
6.Dribble Newfoundland Screech over contents.
7.Cover and bake in pre-heated oven at 375 degrees F for 2 hours.
